Milwaukee’s Free Meals & Deals for Vets on Veterans Day

Milwaukee salutes military veterans on Veterans Day!  To show our deep appreciation for service, many Milwaukee businesses have teamed up to offer special Veterans Day “Meals & Deals” for our hometown heroes. Military veterans can enjoy free haircuts, dinners, health services, and other freebies! To claim an offer from the businesses below, please show proof of military service. Some offers are being extended to active military personnel as well. Most offers will require some form of Military ID such as a VA ID card, Drivers License with Veteran’s Designation, or a Veteran’s Organization Card (American Legion, VFW, etc.)

Call ahead to verify locations and times as some Veterans Day offers are available only “while supplies last”.  Please understand some of the generous listings below are offered by small, independent family businesses who may reach their limits.
